European Cherry Fruit Fly
Carroll, Juliet; Herrmann, Taylere
An insect pest native to Europe and parts of Asia, European cherry fruit fly can infest Prunus spp. such as sweet cherry, tart cherry, mahaleb cherry, black cherry and other wild cherries. This insect can also infest fruit of honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.), including those of invasive honeysuckles (L. tartarica and L. morrowii). European cherry fruit fly was confirmed found in Ontario, Canada in 2016. In 2017, European cherry fruit fly adults were found in Western New York on traps set in wild cherry and honeysuckle along the Niagara River. Since then, it has spread from the Niagara River inland along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
